IHG rewards restaurant guests for ordering takeout and dining out
Atlanta, Georgia – 15 November 2017 –
InterContinental Hotels Group is working with the U.S. leading online and mobile food-ordering company GrubHub, and the world’s leading provider of online restaurant reservations, OpenTable, to offer members a unique takeout and dining out point earning benefit for using either service via IHG channels. These innovative collaborations make IHG Rewards Club the first hotel loyalty program to offer members consistent point earning benefits for ordering delivery to the hotel or dining on or off a property.
The GrubHub integration will be offered across markets where GrubHub is available in more than 1,000 hotels in the U.S. for guests staying at the Holiday Inn Express, Staybridge Suites and Candlewood Suites brands.
The OpenTable integration is global; starting now IHG Rewards Club members can access OpenTable via IHG channels and book reservations at any OpenTable restaurant in the U.S., including those at select IHG hotels, with the restaurant options expanding to the U.K. and Australia by the end of 2017.
Members will earn 500 IHG Rewards Club points for their first completed OpenTable reservation via IHG channels. With each subsequently completed reservation via IHG channels, they will earn 300 points for dining at a restaurant at an IHG hotel or 150 points for any other restaurant reservation. This is in addition to the existing benefit for IHG® Rewards Club members to earn ten points for every dollar spent at restaurants at IHG hotels (excluding Kimpton) and billed to their folio.
Members will earn 500 IHG Rewards Club points the first time they order via IHG channels with GrubHub and 250 IHG Rewards Club points for each subsequent Grubhub transaction via IHG channels.
To earn points for using OpenTable or GrubHub, members must order or book through IHG channels, including the IHG App, IHG website and IHG Connect, the on-property Wi-Fi experience at IHG properties.
